High-End Computing Program

Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.


If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).

09.23.22 - Meteor Hunt: New Research Reveals the Life and Death of a Space Rock
New research by an astronomer at the SETI Institute and NASA Ames tells a 2008 meteorite’s origin story. To understand the wide track of meteroid fall patterns from asteroid 2008 TC3, the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division’s Darrel Robertson, in support of the Asteroid Threat Assessment Project at Ames, performed computer modeling to decode this pattern.

9.21.22 - ICCFD11 Proceedings Now Availabler
Proceedings of the ICCFD11 Conference are now available. Co-hosted by the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division, the 11th International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ICCFD) was held on the island of Maui July 11-15. Researchers and experts around the world shared innovative new tools and CFD research advancing our understanding of complex flow physics.

09.06.22 - NASA Supercomputing at SiliCon with Adam Savage
The NASA booth drew large crowds interested in supercomputing and our cool visualizations at SiliCon, August 26-27 at the San Jose Convention Center. Two talks by NAS Division experts were standing-room only: "Artemis: The First Step in the Next Era of Human Exploration," with Derek Dalle, and "Getting Your Start at NASA: All About Internships Across the Agency" with Ashley Coates.

08.30.22 - How a Desert Sparrow Inspired a Third-Year Medical Student to Become a NASA Climate Informatics Scientist Using High-End Computers
A childhood encounter with Cassin’s Sparrow near his West Texas home set John Schnase on a career path that ultimately led him to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, where he found his footing as a climate informatics scientist using a unique combination of field observations, remotely sensed data, climate data, and computers to design information systems enabling a wide range of ecological and environmental research studies.
